You know, I don't write much about ABC on Thursday nights, and that's because they almost always have the same trio of shows on: Wipeout, followed by Grey's Anatomy, followed by Private Practice. I used to have to watch the last ten minutes of Grey's Anatomy with my ex to ensure that we wouldn't miss the beginning of Lost, and holy mackeral was that ever the most emasculating ten minutes of television I've ever had to sit through. Nothing but beautiful nurses crying because their boyfriend was slightly mean to them. I guess Wipeout at least has people getting hit with blunt objects. That's kind of manly.
Anyway, NBC decided to cash in on the Shit **** Says meme with a little Liz Lemon mashup. I like it, how about you? I kinda wanna watch some 30 Rock now.
FX 10 PM: "The Royal Canadian Mounted Police enlist the help of ISIS to transport a Canadian terrorist." A Canadian terrorist? I'm guessing he probably tried to use maple syrup to disrupt a Canucks game, eh? Something about Molson beer, eh? Followed by a new episode of Unsupervised at 10:30.
NBC 8 PM: "Liz and Jack clash over her contract; Kenneth changes his page assignment; Tracy and Jenna get a job entertaining at a bar mitzvah." Wow, Tracy Jordon entertaining at a bar mitzvah? What's the over/under on horrific "If my kid was a Jew, I'd send him to a concentration camp" jokes? Followed by new episodes of Parks & Rec, The Office, and Up All Night.
|The Big Bang Theory|
CBS 8 PM: "Leonard starts to reconsider his friendship with Sheldon; Wolowitz tries to choose his astronaut nickname." Wolowitz winds up changing his name to Gingrich, as he keeps his finger in the political winds of the day. Followed by Rob at 8:30.
NBC 10 PM: "Mitch discovers ulterior motives when a judge offers leniency for his client; Claire tries to convince her parents she needs a cell phone; Tammy and Ray continue working on the Sarah Holt case." The "Sarah Holt case," being, of course, synonymous for "how do we not get cancelled within the next two weeks since we're getting lower ratings than Univision." Too bad, I actually like Josh Lucas.
Fox 9 PM: "Walter tries to help when Isabel's new boyfriend, a baseball star, is robbed; Leo and Walter bring Willa in on the case in hope of earning her trust." Willa, huh? I've never met a girl named Willa that I actually trusted, except maybe for Willa Cather, and even she was long since dead when I "met" her. In the forms of her writings, of course. Preceded by American Idol in St. Louis at 8 PM.

CBS 9 PM: "Reese and Finch call on a former POI and Zoe to help when they learn that the latest POI may have been pushed to his breaking point by a string of bad luck." This is the vaguest possible description for a show that could ever be written. "Hey, this guy calls up another guy because another guy is feeling down." That's my amended description for tonight's episode. Followed by The Mentalist at 10 PM.
